CPS and/or Intervention. Need advice.

I think they just need to grow up, but do family members need an intervention and/or CPS called on them?

My relatives are a messy and quite possibly insane bunch. It's not that they just forget to vacuum and dust once a month. Their house looks like it belongs in a slum. On top of that, they do not take care of themselves. And they have a 4 month old who I feel should not be in their care. I've been wanting to call CPS. Family members want to do an intervention, but without a professional running it. I feel they are enablers and want to take the easy route.
I saw the baby a few days ago. The child was wheezing like it had a cold. Ever since this poor kid has been home, it's had cold like symptoms.
I want the best for my relatives and their kid. I thought they needed to get their lives in order before they had a kid. Family enablers thought having a kid would do that. I feel a professional or a court appointed professional needs to help because my significant other and I have tried to our part on the emotional and physical levels.
Any suggestions from anyone who has been in a similar situation?
